Daylight savings time not updating xp
Out of the box, XP and the new DST changes don’t get along. Microsoft Windows time service keeps track of Daylight Savings Time (DST) and can be set to automatically adjust your computer's clock to reflect the time changes.Microsoft is providing a hotfix – but only to the companies that have an extended support contract.To their credit, Microsoft does provide a registry workaround for the rest of us.But…No update for 2000 Workstation, or any of the server editions. I know some companies that have hundreds of Windows 2000 boxes.
Not perfect but it will do as I am doing away with this server for a new one anyway. 2 years later, this bug has still not been fixed by Microsoft!
It updates Daylight Saving Time (Yes it is Saving, not Savings) in these time zones: -Alaska Standard Time Zone-Central Standard Time Zone-Eastern Standard Time Zone-Mountain Standard Time Zone-Pacific Standard Time Zone-Atlantic Standard Time Zone (Canada)-Newfoundland Standard Time Zone (Canada) If we are missing another US timezone that supports daylight saving time, please let us know by emailing [email protected] utility can install, or uninstall the change.
It runs without any setup and requires no extra DLLs or runtime.
With the recent changes to DST windows users must apply a patch to allow the system to update the time on the proper dates. Accept the License Agreement by selcting the "I Agree" radio button. The update application will now check to see if the patch needs to be applied.
